who we are

seeking truths through imagination

This project was born from the encounter between critical thinking and bodily practices:

Experiences lived in body workshops in which, by chance, only women participated and the contact with reflections of contemporary feminists such as Donna Haraway, Saidiya Hartman and Christine Greiner led me to experiment with fabulation as a way to bring together stories that women keep in silence.

Christine Greiner

Performance artist who writes the feminine with her own body. Her research involves the various layers of the feminine tangled and silenced in women's bodies over time, with a specific focus on the relationships between fragility and power. Highlighting these hidden layers and braiding possible new narrative lines is what she seeks with her artistic activity. Performance is the instrument she uses to write with her own body these reflections on different media such as video, photography, canvases and other objects. She has exhibited in several museums and galleries in Brazil and Europe, such as MAC-USP, MAM SP, MIS SP, Paço das Artes (São Paulo), MARP (Ribeirão Preto), MAXXI (Rome), Studio Stefania Miscetti (Rome), Radyalsystem (Berlin), among others.
